I think for OBDII cars, $500 for 5hp is hard to swallow...

On the other hand, OBDI's, like my 95, $150 bucks for 5hp is a STEAL!!!

I would stay away from Tech9, havn't had good experience with their chips...the power felt noticably increased, but the check engine light went on (ECU fault code), and the speed limiter (190km/h) was still there until I complained, they put in another chip, but it didn't feel as good after a while with it- and I wasn't able to check the top speed limiter before I swapped it back out.
